As writers try their darndest to pander to every marketable facet of society, women included, TV shows become inundated with shallow one dimensional characters. For example a writer may sketch out a strong yet beautiful and sassy character, give her awesome powers, but forget to include her in any major fights. This trope is all too common in any medium be it television, literature, or film. In Bleach, one of my favorite (but less so every episode) amines, there are about five girls that I can name off the top of my head that are stated, in series to be extremely powerful, but have yet to participate in a decisive battle to date (two have never been seen fighting at all). Are we supposed to accept this as good enough? Is it alright to just give lip service to the concept of strong female superheroes while the men get all the real action? I say nay! Below is a list of abominations that not only do not further the feminist agenda, but contribute to its not being taken seriously.
